Rust and oil absorbed by Electret filter
A diving cylinder can retain small particles of dust, and oil residue.
Inhaling these contaminants can be harmful to your body.
New electret filter cartridge employed in the bio-filter and bio-micro efficiently removes impurities including rust, dust and oil.
Shock absorbing mount mechanism
The bio-micro is equipped with a shock absorbing mount mechanism.
A ball joint employed in the mount absorbs external shock being forced to the main body of bio-micro and protect from damage.
※ Please note that it cannot withstand excessive shock.
